Greetings back from Decatur........ Hope all is good up there.. Will probably be making another trip up there soon. But, the Smart is not a good car for us to drive up there in, so will prob. take my Civic... The expressways would scare the living daylights out of me if I drove the smart up there. LOL Are you a beer drinker?? If so, may have to try and meet up for a "few"... We like our beer--German Hefe Weizen...Have a Happy Easter.............
My name is natty and I see you're from Chicago (my next vacation spot) :)
anyways, I've been trying to find more participants from the windy city to take my Smart Car owner survey. This is for a marketing strategy plan that I have to do for one of my classes at Fordham University in NY. It'll only take a few minutes and my group and I would really love to hear from you. :)

PS we also like grilled food and cats. Got a insider, and a PT inside/outside cat that likes the soft furniture. And 2 Alaskan Malamutes outside as well. It is sometimes a zoo around here with all the animals--cats, fox, racoons, birds and opossums--they are gross!
Sorry for the delay, I dont check this site much. Was up your way last weekend. Do you have a white Smart? We got lost on N. Clark St. looking for the Prost bar, and seen a white Smart parked on a side road. Also seen another white one by Dublins Tavern on N. State/Rush area as well. Anyway, hope al lis good up there. (-:
LMAO! I stopped at a gas station and that's what they gave me to write on. I have seen yours every now and then when I'm in Lakeview, so I thought, what the heck, i'll write a note. I'm glad you found it under all the snow. Welcome to the site.
